Plantronics, Inc a global communications company that powers meaningful human connection and collaboration, today announced the latest addition to its Blackwire line, the Blackwire 8225, which offers new hybrid ANC capabilities. This premium corded plug-and-play USB headset is an extension of the popular Blackwire 3300, Blackwire 5200 and Blackwire 7225 series, which combines advanced audio features to significantly reduce background noise, further enabling today’s need to work from anywhere.

The Blackwire 8225 is easy for IT to deploy and manage and is designed to drastically reduce the noise and distraction that comes with every style of workplace – from the home office to the traditional office. Three settings of advanced hybrid active noise cancelling (ANC) technology allow users to adjust to fit their work environment and seamlessly tune out distracting household noises such as vacuum cleaners, or workplace chatter from colleagues. A noise-cancelling microphone enhanced with Poly Acoustic Fence technology ensures users sound crisp and clear from wherever they work by automatically reducing distracting background noise, like nearby talkers or dogs barking, so that the only sound heard on the other end of the line is clear, premium audio of the speaker talking.

“A consistent complaint we hear from our customers across various workspaces is the challenge of dealing with noise and distractions that can make you less productive,” said Roger Ogborne, global solutions marketing at Poly. “The new Blackwire 8225 joins our extensive suite of headsets, designed for everyday wear, with the latest acoustic innovation so IT leads and end-users can feel confident in their experience, no matter where they are.”

For IT managers looking to outfit their workforce with the right devices to drastically reduce distraction and noise, the Blackwire 8225 series is an easy to use, plug-and-play solution. Along with its intuitive, stylish design, the Blackwire 8225 delivers exceptional enterprise grade audio performance – even in the noisiest environments. To oversee and improve workforce fleet deployment, IT teams can remotely manage the Blackwire 8225 with Plantronics Manager Pro, a software as a service solution sold separately.

For Microsoft Teams users, Blackwire 8225 offers a Microsoft Teams version to support an easy collaboration and communication experience. A dedicated Teams button provides instant access to the Teams desktop application for a seamless call, meeting, or collaboration opportunity.

“Today, more than ever before, workers are desperately in need of tools that allow them to concentrate during calls and meetings, block-out background noise, and enable one’s ability to work and communicate, effectively,” said Alaa Saayed, information and communications technology industry director and fellow, Frost and Sullivan. “Poly’s Blackwire 8225 uses Acoustic Fence technology to shield any sounds besides the speaker’s voice, and its hybrid active noise cancellation technology provides the user with a much more advanced noise blocking experience, leaving both the end-user and the far-end with a premium audio experience.”
